Build the Legendary HMS Bounty Admiralty model

Start for only £4.99

About the HMS Bounty

This 1:48 scale model, made entirely of wood, offers you the chance to build a naval model by faithfully following centuries-old construction techniques. 

The Admiralty model style dates from the 17th century. At the time, naval shipyards would not use drawings and the design of a new ship would be assigned to skilled artisans. In England, specific committees, who worked under the Admiralty, would scrutinise a model before giving the go-ahead for the building of the actual ship. The assessment of all its features was of paramount importance, so these ‘Admiralty models’ as they became known, would reproduce every aspect of the ship including its internal architecture. These models were made by craftsmen whose expertise was acquired over many years and handed down from father to son.     

Designed from the construction plans, your Admiralty style model of the Bounty will allow you to understand the structure of the actual ship and to build a model that faithfully replicates the techniques of old.
